CANADA'S   "EVERGREEN   PLAYGROUND"   AFFORDS
RECREATION   AND   PLEASURE   FOR   EVERYONE
VICTORIA... . . Vancouver . . . Vancouver Island . . .
the British Columbia mainland — here, indeed, is an
"Evergreen Playground" dedicated to the enjoyment of vaca'
tionists and travelers from every clime!
Scenic attractions of world-wide renown . . . every type
of outdoor activity and recreation . . . fine hotels and resorts
. . . wonderful climate, all combine to provide an ideal vacation locale.
"Princess" liners from the Lenora Street Dock in Seattle
carry travelers to Victoria in just four hours—a delightful
inland water cruise in itself.   Victoria's famous Empress
Hotel affords a hospitality and an atmosphere of warmth and
comfort unequalled.   The city is a typically British community that offers many interesting features, including the
Parliament Buildings, Butchart Sunken Gardens, Provincial
Museum and Library, Mineral Museum, Dominion Astro-
physical Observatory, and Crystal Gardens natatorium and
promenade.
From Victoria to Vancouver is a short jaunt that may be made over three
routes: (1) Direct via "Princess" liners; (2) Via motor to Nanaimo, and
then by auto ferry to Vancouver; (3) Via motor to Sidney, and then by
auto ferry to Steveston, on the mainland.

Vancouver, a city of 235,000 residents, has the Hotel Vancouver as the center
of its social and business life.  Here, too, are many sightseeing features — Stanley
Park, the Marine Drive, English Bay, Capilano Canyon and Lynn Canyon.  This
city is the Pacific Coast terminal for the Canadian Pacific "Empress" liners to Honolulu and the Orient, and
the transcontinental trains that travel East via Banff,
Lake Louise and the Bungalow Camps in the Canadian
Rockies.   From Vancouver, one may return to the
United States on a "Princess" liner direct to Seattle, or
via motor over the paved Pacific Highway across the
international border at Blaine and thence via Bellingham
and Everett to Seattle.
Throughout this "Evergreen Playground" are constant opportunities to enjoy outdoor recreations. Victoria
and Vancouver, as well as some of the Island resorts, have
many fine golf courses. Streams and lake are plentifully
stocked with trout, salmon and other members of the finny
tribe. Excellent indoor and outdoor swimming is available.
There is boating, tennis, horseback, hunting in season, hiking
and mountain climbing, and many other activities.
In short, whatever your pleasure, it may be gratified here!

i CANADIAN  PACIFIC PRINC
FROM Seattle to Victoria
and Vancouver . . . from
Sidney, on Vancouver Island,
to Steveston, on the British
Columbia mainland . . . from
Nanaimo to Vancouver—
these are the routes served by
Canadian Pacific "Princess"
liners, operating every day of
the year.
The Seattle-Victoria^Van-
convey service is maintained
aboard the "Princess Kathleen" and ''Princess 'Marguerite" These liners are
fast, modern vessels that af-
ford luxurious accommodations, fine service and a delightful cuisine. Each ship has
sleeping accommodations for
more than 400 passengers, including a number of de luxe
rooms and suites with private
shower baths and lavatories.
The public rooms and lounges
are comfortably furnished,
and the cruise aboard these
liners is a vacation feature in
itself.
The Steveston-Sidney service and the l^anaimo - Vancouver service is maintained
by fast, motor ferries operating on convenient time schedules, as designated on the
page below. Connections with
automobile bus routes on
Vancouver Island and B. C.
Electric trains on the mainland are made by the steamers operating on the Steves-
ton-Sidney route.
ALL of the ships on these
^routes provide ample
space for passenger automobiles of any size. The "Princess Kathleen" and "Princess
Marguerite" for instance,
have room for fifty cars, and
the ships on other routes are
equally spacious. Loading and
unloading is merely a, matter
of driving on and off over
wide, level runways—as easy
as taking your bag!
These services, without exception, have been planned
and arranged for the utmost
convenience of tourists and
vacationists, and every effort
is constantly expended to cater to the comfort and pleasure of passengers aboard any
of the liners. Ticket and automobile reservations on any of
the ships may be arranged
through Canadian Pacific
ticket offices anywhere, or
may be obtained at the Canadian Pacific dock in each city.
Wherever you would go
in Canada's "Evergreen Playground," you will find transportation provided by Canadian Pacific — the world's
greatest travel system. A
large share of the enjoyment
of any vacation is provided
by the delightful cruises offered by the steamers in the
"B. C. Coast Service.1'
The complete time schedule and additional information pertaining to the summer service on each of these
routes, fares, automobile
rates, etc., appears on the
lower part of this page.
